This week, we’ll be developing our critical thinking skills; more specifically, in the area of deduction–taking information that we have in order to answer questions that are posed to us with incomplete information.  An example of this practice is deducing the definition of a word by using context clues.

You will have an impromptu in class.  I will give you a new piece of literature and you will have to respond to 5 comprehension questions (like the comprehension checks we have been doing in class).  You will be graded on answering the question and supporting it with textual proof.  You must also use the skills we will develop in class of deduction (since the vocabulary of the story will be graduated and difficult).
